the latter day Leary emphasized the importance of space colonization and an ensuing extension of the human lifespan while also providing a detailed explanation of the eight-circuit model of consciousness in complex, interesting books such as "Info-Psychology", among several others. He adopted the acronym "SMI2LE" as a succinct summary of his pre-transhumanist agenda: SM (Space Migration) + I2 (intelligence increase) + LE (Life extension).

Leary's colonization plan varied greatly throughout the years. According to his initial plan, 5,000 of Earth's most virile and intelligent individuals would be launched on a vessel (Starseed 1) equipped with luxurious amenities. This idea was entirely plagiarized from the plotline of Paul Kantner's concept album Blows Against The Empire, which in turn was derived from Robert A Heinlein's Lazarus Long series.Leary's endorsement of carefree LSD usage is also reflected upon in a more negative light in the concluding chapter of Hunter S. Thompson's Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. In addition, Owsley Stanley, one of the pioneers of the era, would later write of him,

"Leary was a fool. Drunk with 'celebrity-hood' and his own ego, he became a media clown- and was arguably the single most damaging actor involved in the destruction of the evanescent social movement of the '60's. Tim, with his very public exhortations to the kids to 'tune in, turn on and drop out', is the inspiration for all the current draconian US drug laws against psychedelics. He would not listen to any of us when we asked him to please cool it, he loved the lime-light and relished his notoriety... I was not a fan of his hst..This was the fatal flaw in Tim Leary’s trip. He crashed around America selling “consciousness expansion” without ever giving a thought to the grim meat-hook realities that were lying in wait for all the people who took him too seriously.... No doubt they all Got What Was Coming To Them. All those pathetically eager acid freaks who thought they could buy Peace and Understanding for three bucks a hit. But their loss and failure is ours, too. What Leary took down with him was the central illusion of a whole life-style that he helped to create... a generation of permanent cripples, failed seekers, who never understood the essential old-mystic fallacy of the Acid Culture: the desperate assumption that somebody--or at least some force--is tending that Light at the end of the tunnel

Yes, I am pretty sure that was not done intentionally but it needs to come down ASAP.

Wow! Some Dark Hollow nailed it when he said
"The cat is out of the bag"

This is our Watergate.
O.K I am getting goofy, but it has been a crazy evening

Pretty soon I'll need a program to identify the players...heroes and villians both.
